Palmer Hamilton Partnership are delighted to invite you to a day of workshops, learning and networking.

This one day event on May 21st 2007 comprises two free workshop sessions. These sessions will cover two key areas crucial to making your craft/design business viable.

Booking for this event is essential! You must book by 4th May.

1. PRICING AND COSTING (10am - 1pm)
Pricing and costing still remains a grey area for many designer makers and yet getting it right is pivotal to the success of a business.

"If I double my costs surely that will cover me"...... "Well I suppose I should charge more but will  people be prepared to pay that much for my work?"...... "If I reduce my price maybe I will sell more"..... "So what should I be charging for my time anyway?"

Sound familiar? Then this workshop is for you.

"People love what I do so why am I not more successful?" Why am I not selling enough? Why aren't people beating a path to my door? I know I am good but when is the rest of the world going to realise? I feel sick at the thought of having to ring a potential new client!
If these thoughts have crossed your mind, then this is the workshop for you!

You can attend either workshop or both and stay for part or the whole day. Networking opportunities with other designer makers will arise throughout the day before and after each session.

Both workshops will be delivered by Dan Maier:
Dan Maier is a designer and founder of Extraordinary Design. Her business grew from "one man band" to a limited company employing 20 people, owning her studio and selling around the world. She has a practical approach and understands the struggle to be creative and run a business simultaneously.

The day will begin at 9.30am for registration and there will be a break for lunch between sessions. Lunch can be eaten in the De La Warr restaurant, (soup and sandwiches from £3.50, 2 course set menu for £10, bookings 01424 229119) locally or you can bring your own lunch and eat in the beautiful surroundings of the De La Warr Pavilion.

Booking for this event is essential! You must book by 4th May.

Please confirm attendance for the whole day or for either one of the workshops. To register your booking please click on the e-mail address below and indicate which sessions you would like to attend. We will confirm your booking and let you know what to bring on the day.

It is very important that we know how many people will be attending each session. If you  book a place and are unable to attend then please do let us know!!!

The day is supported by Arts Council England South East (CIBAS) and the De La Warr Pavilion and builds on the designer maker forum run last year. This forum brought together many practitioners living and working in the Hastings and Bexhill area.

All areas of the DLWP are fully accessible but should you have any access requirements then please contact:
